A player who has played on the tour for a number of years now, Jamie Burnett is certainly not the most familiar of faces, but will forever hold a place in the Snooker History books.
Jamie’s career has been solid if unspectacular. A professional since 1992, Jamie is yet to win a ranking event though remains an ever-present on tour. His moment of glory came in 2004 as he became the first player to make a competitive break of over 147 with a 148 by using a free ball to begin his break. Aside from this his best moment came in the 2010 Shanghai Masters where he reached his only ranking tournament final which he lost to Ali Carter.
His recent form has seen him slip out of the top 32 in the world, having not won a match since December 2012, and culminating in a third round World Championship qualifying defeat to Yu Delu.
Whilst we may never see Jamie Burnett at the very pinnacle of Snooker, we should certainly keep an eye out for more spectacular moments which could see him make a name for himself once again.
